Deadbird – III: The Forest Within the Tree (20 Buck Spin)

All that I have read, seen and heard recently about the American South has been synonymous with weird, backward ideas (to put it politely). It looks like the majority of the people there is trying very hard to undo some… Continue Reading →

Devildriver – Outlaws ‘Til The End (Napalm Records)

Dez Fafara doesn’t do things by half, and if the late Neil Armstrong was still with us today, I’m sure he would replicate his famous quote in order to embrace Devildriver’s latest venture, “one small step for man, one giant… Continue Reading →

Orange Goblin – The Wolf Bites Back (Candlelight Records)

It’s 2018 and in short order the majority of the mainstream folks I work with have been variously excited by the FA cup final, a royal wedding, the forthcoming Steps and Aqua show in Dundee (I shit you not folks!),… Continue Reading →

Zeal & Ardor – Stranger Fruit (MKVA)

When the debut Zeal & Ardor album impacted it really was that rarity of originality, strength of concept and touch of execution that marked it out as something very special indeed. The fact that it would be set upon by… Continue Reading →

Poseidon – Prologue (Ripple Music)

If you’re not yet familiar with Poseidon, then I think it is time you changed that, and ‘Prologue’ may well be the album to help you. Developing from the single track ‘Omega’ that was released over a year ago, the… Continue Reading →

Black Magic Six- Choose Death (Svart)

Me And That Man – Songs Of Love And Death (Cooking Vinyl)

Here’s a thing and a half. I mean the name of the group is only a little curious whereas the album title is a bit underwhelming and maybe the third or fourth one in my collection with that exact title…. Continue Reading →

Ash And Coal – Legacy (ViciSolum Productions)

It was way back in 2013 when we last heard from dark rock band Ash And Coal who had kindly sent in their EP ‘Agnostica’ to us on vinyl. At the time I was pretty impressed with their moribund but… Continue Reading →

Pelander – Time (Nuclear Blast)

If you are unfamiliar with Pelander, that’s nothing to be worried about, seeing as it is the first release by Magnus Pelander, Witchcraft mainstay, under his own moniker, and a definite change from his normal doom tinged heavy rock releases…. Continue Reading →

Dead Soul – The Sheltering Sky (Century Media)

Dead Soul is, essentially Anders Landelius and Niels Nielsen and the never-to-be-trusted PR blurb goes on about delta blues, electronica, Johnny Cash and Nick Cave meeting Nine Inch Nails. ‘New ‘ and ‘exciting’ were also mentioned. Feeling like the lass… Continue Reading →

Wino and Conny Ochs – Freedom Conspiracy (Exile On Mainstream)

Troubadour, noun: a poet who writes verse to music.” So goes one definition in my dictionary. So what has that got to do with anything? Several years ago, just after the release of the exceptional ‘Lillie F65’, I saw an… Continue Reading →

Interview – King Dude

A visionary of the American gothic musical movement, alongside the likes of Cult of Youth and Ledfoot, King Dude has rapidly gained recognition in the last year or so due to the popularity of his 2014 release ‘Fear’ which is… Continue Reading →
